Sustainable Development Goal 1: End poverty

End poverty in all its forms everywhere

Extreme poverty rates have been reduced by more than half since 1990 but the reality is that one in five people in LEDCs still live on less than $1.25 a day.The United Nations note that 836 million people still live in extreme poverty

Key targets for 2030:

  • Eradicate extreme poverty everywhere
  • Implement social protection systems for all
  • Ensure that all men and women have equal rights to economic resources and access to basic services.
  • Implement programmes and policies to end poverty.

By 2030, it is hoped that poverty will be a thing of the past and that many of the people who live in LEDCs have been ‘lifted’ into better lives.
